Objective: There is growing evidence that stem cells exert regenerative actions by means of paracrine factors. In the present study we tested the hypothesis that soluble factors secreted by cultured endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) may support neuronal cell functions and survival. Methods: EPC [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
